Why should I give to UC Irvine?
Because UC Irvine only receives a fraction of its total annual budget from state funding—just 11% —philanthropic contributions are critical to the university’s continued success. This campus depends on private support so that it can continue to deliver the local impact, national influence and global reach UC Irvine has achieved as the region’s leading research university.
